Man arrested for killing daughter

ISLAMABAD: A man allegedly killed his 15-year-old daughter in the name of ‘honour’ in a rural part of the capital on Tuesday, police said.

The suspect later confessed to the police and asked them to come to his home and arrest him, they said.

The incident took place in Golra.

The police quoted the victim’s mother as saying that her husband, a butcher, came home during the day and asked her to fetch medicine from a pharmacy.

When she turned, she said, her husband told her he had strangled their daughter.

She said that he told her he had informed the police about the ‘honour’ killing, and that they should come to their home and arrest him.

The victim’s mother lodged a complaint with the police and a case was registered on charges of murder, they said.

The police added that the suspect had already confessed to the murder and was in police custody.

They said the suspect is from Mandi Bahauddin and moved to Islamabad with his family around four years ago.

The police claim that the victim befriended a young man who lived in their neighbourhood. When the suspect discovered the victim’s friend had visited her at home, he told her to sever ties with him and not to let him come to their house.

They said the victim’s friend then visited the house again, and as a result the suspect killed his daughter.
